The State Of The Tux3 File-System
Phoronix: The State Of The Tux3 File-System
Btrfs has received much of the limelight on Linux when talking about file-systems since it promises to compete with Sun's ZFS file-system and introduce several features not found in the commonly-used EXT3 and EXT4 file-systems. However, work on other Linux file-systems hasn't halted...
Is this a serious attempt of a ZFS file system, or just something that is never meant to be used for real?
Seems to be real. They're trying a novel approach by not journalling at all but doing log replays instead.
